Title: Price of Ryeland lambs
Post by: jheard on April 17, 2016, 09:16:36 pm
Hi

We're about to start off with Ryeland lambs.  It's going to be quite a learning curve! Eek!!  We're going to see some next weekend that will be ready in July but we have no idea of the expected cost. A post on here several years ago ranged from 40-100 per lamb.  Could anyone give me an idea of what to expect price-wise? The owner also has Shearlings and again, a rough guide to cost would be great.

Also, what to look for when 'viewing' sheep to get for meat!!!

Thanks for you help ????
